We never judge the Scriptures by our experience; we test our experience by The Word of GOD.
The Measure Of A Man
The value of a man should be seen in what he gives and not in what he is able to receive.
~~ Albert Einstein
LORD, help me to pray for me and to forgive me. We are told to forgive outside of ourselves. Help me inside of me to forgive me. May I rest today LORD in the HOLY SPIRIT, who will guide me to the throne of rest and forgiveness…..
Changing Your World
“Woe to those who make unjust laws, to those who issue oppressive decrees, to deprive the poor of their rights and withhold justice from the oppressed of my people making widows their prey and robbing the fatherless. What will you do on the day of reckoning, when disaster comes from afar? To whom will you run for help? where will you leave your riches?” ~~ Isaiah 10:1-3
What do you know? What are you led to do today? That life is not fair. Let’s get involved, and help those who live with injustice.
GRACE & PEACE
Why do people give things up until Easter Sunday?
Millions of people do this during Lent as a sign of sacrifice and to test their self-discipline.
Christians believe that this is to represent Christ’s sacrifice when he went into the desert to pray and fast for 40 days before later dying on the cross.
In The New Testament, while Christ was there, Satan tempted him to turn away from His earthly mission and purpose to worship him instead. Christ refused, which is why people may give something up, in order to test their self-discipline.
Could you give up something you “truly” enjoy for the next 28 days, to prove you are disciplined?
Do you try the changing trends(as the chart above shows) or are you a tried and true short and active or natural nail wearer? Which shape has given you a longer and better wear for your lifestyle? It is not always the polish that is the chipping culprit.
“The vote is the most powerful instrument ever devised by human beings for breaking down injustice and destroying the terrible walls which imprison people because they are different from others”.
Martin Luther King
This may be the future if we do not exercise the RIGHT to vote.
We can fight to change the laws but they will not change the HEART.
